5 Reasons to Make the Switch to Solid Shampoo

Last month we launched one of our most requested products yet - our Shampoo Soap bar. It has been going down an absolute treat ever since. We even had to up our manufacturing to keep up with the demand! The trend for solid soap bars has been on the rise over the past couple of years with customers wanting a more environmentally friendly lifestyle and bathroom cabinet. This week we are giving you the rundown of our top 5 favourite reasons to make the switch to solid shampoos. So if you are yet to be converted, or are just wondering what the benefits of the soaps are, grab a cuppa, put your feet up and read on...

1. Plastic-free packaging!

First and foremost, the main attraction of solid shampoos is the lack of plastic packaging that comes hand in hand with many high street liquid soaps. As we have written about before (which you can read more about here and here), the public is increasingly waking up to the dangers of plastic use. Plastic bottles from drinks and household goods are consumed at an incredible rate with a million plastic bottles bought around the world every minute. By opting for a plastic free shampoos, customers can take a strong step in reducing plastic consumption across the board! 

2. Last a long time - concentrated!

Shampoo bars are a lot more concentrated than liquid soaps. They are not 'watered down' as many high street shampoos meaning they last a lot, lot longer. Some retailers have claimed that shampoo soap bars can last over three times as long as your average liquid shampoo. Saving you money and time in the long run! 

3. Handy for travel

These Shampoo Soap bars come in a very compact size which is perfect for travelling. Gone are the days of dropping a full-sized plastic bottle of shampoo into your suitcase or saving up shampoo samples from hotels and B&Bs to fuel your trips away. Simply wrap up your little soap and away you go. They are extra handy at getting through airport security too!

4. Save space.

We don't know about you but we can never find enough room in our showers and bathroom shelves for all our treats and products. Our handy little Shampoo Soaps save us so much space.

To add to this, these have a low carbon footprint. We save lots of space on distribution and travel costs as so many more Shampoo Soaps can fit into the same space as fewer Liquid Soaps. 

5. They clean your hair! 

And last but by no means less, the soaps are wonderfully good at what they should do. To use, simply wet your hair then run the soap into it or lather up in your hands. Then you can massage the foam into your hair and scalp as you would a liquid shampoo. Rinse and you are ready to go! Don't forget to leave the soap in a dish to dry it out too.

We only use the most natural and kind ingredients in our Shampoo Soaps. We don't put in any unnecessary additives or plastics and you absolutely won't find any palm oil in any of our products. If you have tried our Shampoo Soaps, do get in touch and let us know what you think - we would love to hear from you! 

So, what do you think? Are you ready to make the move to plastic-free Shampoo Soap Bars?

    Hi Laura, there’s nothing in the soap which I would expect to react with hair colour but I would strongly recommend testing out on a small area first. Best wishes

    Are your soap bars suitable for coloured hair?
